Israeli FM Says Trump Will Sign Executive Order To Recognize Golan

Today. Monday March 25/19. We shall see.


Israel's acting foreign minister says US President Donald Trump will sign an executive order recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Syrian border territory on Monday.  

Israel Katz

"Tomorrow, President Trump, in the presence of PM Netanyahu, will sign a decree recognizing Israel's sovereignty on the Golan. Israel-US ties are closer than ever," Katz said.

The signing of the decree will be witnessed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during talks with Trump at the White House, Israel's acting foreign minister, Israel Katz (pictured), said in a tweet.

Netanyahu has long pushed for Washington's endorsement, and many analysts see Trump's comments as a campaign gift ahead of Israel's April 9 election.

Netanyahu arrives in Washington as corruption allegations mount

During his visit to Washington this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will try to showcase his strong relationship with President Trump ahead of elections and leave at home the mounting corruption allegations circling him. But they were biting at his heels as he arrived in Washington on Sunday.  
But then he cut his visit short, after he was to meet Trump

Netanyahu, in Washington to meet President Donald Trump, held emergency consultations with military officials back in Israel and decided to cut his visit short, cancelling a planned address to the AIPAC conference and meetings with congressional leaders.
“There has been a criminal attack on the State of Israel and we will respond forcefully,” he said, “In a few hours I will meet with President Trump. I will return to Israel immediately afterward.”
Anticipating a strong Israeli response, Gaza’s Hamas leaders have apparently gone underground.
Did or will Trump have recognized Israeli "sovereignty" over Golan during this brief visit?


  1. ...and in return Trumps expects Netanyahu to sign on to Trumps peace initiative. Now if Netanyahu baulks what happens?

    1. Hi Robert;
      Don't know what happens
      Maybe Netanyahu will sign cause he has nothing to lose and everything to gain?
      I'm not sure that Trump has done this yet, but, for the Israel FM to say it's going to happen...

  2. From Torah---Genesis 15:18----

    On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land— from the river of Egypt to the great River Euphrates.

    How do the Jews acquire their supposed God given lands by signing on to Trumps peace deal? Trumps peace proposal is set to be announced right after the Israeli elections. A war may breakout to halt Trumps peace initiative.

  3. What is Trumps 'peace deal'?

    I've seen talk about it- but do you have info regarding what it entails?

    And if so can you leave a link here for me and anyone else interested to read about it?

    As for a war breaking out?
    Since there is always war.. somewhere
    Might we say- war will worsen or escalate?
